[UPDATE 1746z] The update is now available to Steam users. To update, simply restart the Steam client.

After a long beta run, X-Plane version 11.30 is now stable and available to customers via the updater. By far the most anticipated change is the addition of the particle system, which allows developers more freedom over effects such as wing vortices, engine blast and wing condensation.

Threshold was the first to report the changelog for X-Plane 11.30, back in September, where an annoymous source provided the patch notes, which included the aforementioned new particle system, a new ATC system and bringing panel resolution up to 4K.

Here is the full changelog:

To update to 11.30r3, simply run the X-Plane 11 Installer and select "Update X-Plane". Or, if you're on the Steam version, simply restart the client.

Alternatively, see the changes from beta to beta over on the X-Plane website.
